You can choose between a 'boy' and a 'girl' in the Pokemon games.

Many adults play the games too though, so why not have the option of picking a grown up as your trainer/avatar?

~b-cuz your Mom would be too old in-game har-har /s

Leaf: We've only known each other for a few minutes...
Red: Would you like to go on a Pokemon adventure together?
Leaf: Meh, that seems fair.

Yea, one thing that kinda wears out the novelty overtime is being unable to play a character that's actually older than 10. I do think the trainers in Black and White looked a bit older, like 14 and such, but it sorta goes back to the same formula afterwards.

I don't think there are many female trainers in Pokemon that -wouldn't- get asked that question.

Except crazies.
...and Fairy trainers.

If they put that in the game it would be awesome, I mean it's not like little kids want to play all that much, Plus, it would be that much better for the people who played it from its beginnings.

"welcome to the world of pokemon" (gets inside a canon) "are you a man or a woman?" (picks woman) "and now your adventure is about to start" (cannon fires while i yell: "X-treeeeme!!!")

and that's how you play in an X-treme way.

I really wish we could create our own characters for the games. X/Y came kinda close to it, but didn't do it as well as they could have if they wanted to.

They always say 'boy' or 'girl', but what about people who are neither? Or switch from one to the other (genderfluid) from time to time? Or both?

In the most recent games, including the ruby and Sapphire remakes, the player characters are aged up to a vague area of 15-18. This was done as a middle ground, and the fanbase are pretty much equal parts 5 years olds and 25 year olds, due to the longevity of the pokemon franchise. Also, they probably didn't want to endorse 10 year olds running off on their own into wild animal infested hellholes.

The Black and White player characters were older, they didn't look 10 years old, but early teens.   I would be pushing to say 15, but definitely not 10 year olds.  So they could age them.  Also, it isn't like other children series don't have adult player characters.
